Food Forests are efficient in design as they mimic natural ecologies. The many benefits in the design includes reducing evaporation through the shade of a canopy and understory layer, increasing a diversity in yield, building edge for habitat, and building soil macro/micro nutrients. Check out Lobo Gardens facebook event page for more information on this project! Hope to see you there.
*The trees will be delivered next week, for now we are designing and preparing the beds. Please get involved in the process, hope to see you there!

Grow organic food and medicinals here at UNM!
Hokona Garden is a small Herb garden located in the central UNM Hokona courtyard. What used to be an old fountain has been converted to a growing space for UNM students. Here we are growing a variety of plants, including the mint that provides UNM Chartwells with Aqua Fresca. Throughout the year we are in need of volunteers that can water the gardens. If students are interested in getting involved, please email the Lobo Gardens Field Coordinator at Lobogardens@gmail.com.
We are looking for volunteers that can water Hokona daily. Feel free to harvest mint for your iced tea, and get involved with the outdoor free workshops, or 3 credit course classrooms.
Thanks and see you soon!

Project Share has spent 25 years feeding the hungry here in Albuquerque, located 1515 Yale SE. Lobo Gardens has worked with them to establish the Community Garden located on the property. Project Share has recently donated an 8 x 12 ft. Greenhouse. We are in search of a local business/farm that would be interested in collaborating with Lobo Gardens over the years, and accept the greenhouse as a donation. Currently its being stored at a temporary location and needs a home! Any ideas? Please contact Lobo Gardens Coordinator at Lobogardens@gmail.com.
“This easy to use greenhouse offers plenty of room and light (over 90% transmission) for your plants. The smart, efficient structure uses crystal-clear polycarbonate greenhouse panels. With a split-style door and large adjustable vent window. Easy to assemble; low maintenance. Dimensions of 8′ x 12′: 148″ L x 98″ W x 102″ H (at center)”.
